Take a guided fly fishing float trip on the legendary Battenkill river or one of several other highly productive rivers in the area not as well known (a.k.a. pressured). The 14' Smithfly fly fishing raft will get us to the unreached places targeting browns, rainbows and brook trout. You will fish from the boat and in certain key spots get out a wade. We will fly fish employing several tactics and techniques depending on the hatch, conditions and fish behavior. Some approaches are common, some are old school and some I've developed over years of fishing these waters. !

My husband and I went out for a float trip with John. We had never been fly fishing before. John started our session out of the river teaching us the basics of fly fishing which was extremely helpful. Once we were in the water, John was a patient and encouraging teacher. It was fun to learn about something we had never done before from an expert with a wealth of experience and knowledge. During the whole trip, John was attentive and gave very helpful feedback to grow our skills. The best part of the trip was putting everything we had learned into action and catching our first trout. Overall, he took us from no experience fly fishing to being comfortable out on the river. We both want to keep up this new found hobby! Thank you to John for a truly excellent first experience. I would highly recommend taking a trip with John to anyone. 10/10.

As the temps begin to cool off and the big browns begin to get aggressive and take on their fall spawning colors it’s the perfect time to get out a target them with terrestrials, nymphs and streamers.
